In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 are massively better than the AMD Radeon R7 260 MSI 1GB OC Edition.

The R7 260 has a 4 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GTX 770, but the GeForce GTX 770 has 80 more Texture Mapping Units than the R7 260. As a result, the GeForce GTX 770 exhibits a 83.5 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the R7 260. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The R7 260 has a 4 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GTX 770, but the GeForce GTX 770 has 16 more Render Output Units than the R7 260. As a result, the GeForce GTX 770 exhibits a 16.7 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the R7 260. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The R7 260 was released less than a year after the GeForce GTX 770, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GeForce GTX 770 has 1024 MB more video memory than the R7 260, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GeForce GTX 770 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce GTX 770 has 128.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the R7 260, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 770 is massively better than the R7 260.

The Radeon R7 260 MSI 1GB OC Edition has 768 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 770 has 1536. However, the actual shader performance of the R7 260 is 685 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 770 is 1667. The GeForce GTX 770 having 982 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce GTX 770 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the R7 260.

The Radeon R7 260 MSI 1GB OC Edition requires 95 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 770 requires 230 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the R7 260 and a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GeForce GTX 770. The GeForce GTX 770 requires 135 Watts more than the R7 260 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce GTX 770 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the R7 260.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon R7 260 MSI 1GB OC Edition is a special edition of the fast-middle-class Radeon R7 260.
This edition comes overclocked out of the box in the central unit that was increased from 1000MHz to 1050MHz.
Benchmarks indicate a 4% performance boost and so this card performs identically to GeForce GTX 750.
